WASHINGTON, D.C. — Larry Flynt wants to give Rep. Todd Akin $1 million.
But there’s a catch.
“Please send me evidence that supports your knowledge that women who are raped will naturally not get pregnant,” Flynt, the publisher of Hustler Magazine wrote in an open letter to Akin.
Flynt added, “I assume that you would never have ventured such an original statement about women’s reproductive biology, and suggested that women should have no fear of unwanted pregnancy from rapists, unless you have in your possession completely conclusive scientific evidence.”
In August, Akin said that women’s bodies have a mechanism to prevent pregnancies in the case of “legitimate rape.” Later, Akin apologized for using the latter phrase, but did not walk back the underlying claim.
Flynt’s full letter:
- The 36 victims in the Oakland warehouse fire were trapped with "no way out" in America's deadliest blaze in over a decade.
- Donald Trump has picked former WWE CEO Linda McMahon to lead the Small Business Administration.
- Tennessee authorities have charged two minors with starting the massive wildfires that killed 14 people last month.
